Safety on roads in the Limestone Coast area will be improved with more than 17 kilometres of roads to be resurfaced commencing on Monday 12 January 2015.
The $1,316,000 resealing works will extend the life of these roads and are expected be complete by the middle of February, weather permitting.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with an 80km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
Resurfacing will be carried out at the following locations:
The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Government conducted an audit of speed cameras to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.
Works to improve safety on various sections of roads in the Upper North Area, including more than 41km of surfacing works, will begin on Saturday, 16 March.
Surfacing works to improve safety on Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan are set to commence next week.
